Free Nonprofit Webinar: How to Develop a Workable Strategic Plan for Your Nonprofit 

If You Register and Cannot Attend, You Will Get the Webinar Recording and Slides 

Join us for this 45-minute FREE Nonprofit Webinar Recording where we will show you, step-by-step, how to create and implement a workable strategic plan for your nonprofit organization. 

At the end of this Nonprofit training, you will have the knowledge you need to create a strategic plan that will function as a road map to success for your organization. Nonprofits use strategic planning to focus their energy and limited resources on achieving their goals and objectives. 

Strategic plans are also used to establish agreement among a nonprofit’s board, staff, and stakeholders about what is most important and the intended outcomes and results that should be achieved. 

A nonprofit that undertakes strategic planning will obtain many important benefits, such as:

  • Clear understanding of your nonprofit's values and purpose,
  • Becoming more agile and relevant in an ever-changing environment by understanding your nonprofit's strengths, weaknesses and future opportunities and challenges, and
  • Creating and using action plans that provide clear benchmarks and organizational accountability.

Join John Duffy on this free nonprofit management course to get your organization to the next level.

  • How to achieve success through strategic planning,
  • How to create, and implement, a relevant, action-oriented strategic plan,
